They couldn't wait to take them off.

Becoming an actor is the dream of many young people all over the world. With luxurious lifestyles, legions of fans, and more money than anyone could ever need, the life of a Hollywood star certainly seems an exciting proposition, but making movies isn't always as fun as it seems.

On screen, we only see the end result: a couple of hours of edited, enhanced footage cut together into a feature length motion picture. What we don't see is the long weeks of casting, the endless reshoots, the innumerable production problems, the difficult behind-the-scenes moments, and the desperately uncomfortable costumes.

Yes, one of many actors' biggest complaints involves the outfits they were forced to wear. They may look cool on screen, but slipping into tight spandex on a boiling hot day or sitting for hours while oodles of prosthetics and masses of makeup are applied to one's face definitely doesn't sound like a whole lot of fun.

Some of these parts turned out to be highly lucrative for the actors concerned, but each scene was made so much harder due to the cumbersome costumes they had to wear and these stars simply couldn't wait to tear them off at the end of each day.
